    What we're about

    Welcome to the Gold Coast Day trippers and walking group, we invite you to join us. If the beauty of the great outdoors, the Broadwater, South Straddie and all the other islands out there appeals to you, and you would like to join other like minded people explore these natural treasures, then join up, it's free. We welcome members of all ages who have a respect for nature and want to get out there and enjoy it.

    There has to be more to life than sitting at home watching television, especially in the beautiful part of the world, we call home. Our Cruise and Walk trips take us by boat to explore various locations around Moreton Bay. We also include a few walking trips usually somewhere around the Gold Coast or the Gold Coast hinterland. So why wait? It is free to join and check out what is on offer.

    You can join the facebook page at or click on the little facebook icon in the left hand column to discuss anything to do with the group.

    Thanks again for joining and welcome. Sign on for an outing and meet a few other members of the group.
